Out of all the First Ladies that have come in and out of the White House, only one has come out looking more radiant than ever. This past Election eve, it was hard to ignore 48-year-old Michelle Obama’s glow, and it’s not just because her husband was re-elected either.
Everyone knows that saying “Men are like wine, they get better with age” but I’m starting to think that it also applies to some women. Check out Mrs. Obama’s teen photo below! Someone has definitely stepped up their beauty game…
Now of course, Mrs. O has a makeup artist who beautifies her for all her press events, but looking beautiful starts with skin care. When asked about her skin care routine, “It’s really pretty basic. I wash my face with a good cleanser, and I use a moisturizer with an SPF.” She also added, “Every now and then I’ll go to a dermatologist for microderm or a facial, but I don’t have time to do that all the time.”
According to this Prevention article, the First Lady and mother of two shared that she makes sure to get a full night’s sleep, each and every night. Don’t ask me how she does it. Can you imagine laying your head on your pillow with the weight of America’s problems weighing on your shoulder? Sheesh.
Along with a simple skincare routine and rest, the First Lady also uses products from a company called 3Lab that include a superior anti-aging ingredient: a stem cell cultivated from apples (Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract).
Now, if you aren’t in the market for $200 face serums, I did find cheaper options with a similar apple extract ingredient. An awesome non-toxic and all-natural choice is MyChelle Dermaceuticals who carry a ton of products with apple extract at an affordable price. Right now, you can get the Age Spot/UV Recovery Kit for $69.58 on their site. It includes the Apple Brightening Cleanser, the Apple Brightening Peel and Hydrating Cactus Mask.
Mrs. Obama sets a great example to all women by taking care of her skin. Your skin is the largest organ on your body and protects all your insides! It’s worth taking a few extra minutes every night to cleanse your face and moisturize. And if you know me, then you know it’s also important to slather that same mug in an SPF higher than 30 every morning before you walk out that door. ;)
